Drawbacks of Aptitude testing

  • Aptitude cannot guarantee Success in job or profession.
  • Aptitude only deals with past learning or how much you remember your studies/ Memorising ability.
  • Success in career depends upon the results you produce.
  • Our abilities and accomplishments are based on experiences such as our upbringing, home setting, education and opportunities. For example, an aptitude test might require proficiency in the English language. If this is not your first language, then you might be disqualified in spite of your other abilities.
  • The fact that someone has an aptitude for something does not necessarily mean that they will perform well. Besides aptitude, there are also other factors that affect performance. This includes Training, Motivation and Genetics.
